The demolition phase of the Phoenix shopping center’s redevelopment is officially underway, according to a Wednesday press release. The former Sears store took some of the first hits.
In February, the Phoenix City Council approved a rezoning plan for the 92-acre site at Cactus Road and Tatum Boulevard.
Demolition is expected to continue through the end of the year, according to the release, with new construction beginning in the fall.
When completed, the mixed-use development will include about 2,500 multi-family residences, a Whole Foods, retail shops and office space.
